lyrics

You are a thought that I had never spoken
You are signifier signified
There is a distance that you need to travel
You’re still inside watching the day go by

Oh, the wind is strong
and I know that it'll pull you along
you can try, and try
but your honesty is telling you lies
The wind will not be satisfied

The meek are clawing their way to the surface
I saw window blown out of its frame
I do not recommend you interfering
The wild animals are being tamed

You say you wonder is who will follow you down after you go, but
the little fictions will devour you underneath your coat

You appeared to me out of the ether
out of some sort of closed reality
The light refracts on to the scraped up floorboards
This is the way that things will have to be
My mind's distracted and my shoes are untied
I am a lock, and you are not the key
a gentle thought has somehow spiralled upwards
I am a figment, you are next to me

and I know, I know
that your thoughts are burning out of control
the wind blows and blows
you have cut the string and tightened the bow
but some things you simply cannot know

All you wonder is who will follow you down after you go
The little fictions will devour you underneath your coat

You appeared to me out of the ether
out of some sort of closed reality
a gentle thought has somehow spiralled upwards
I am a figment, you are next to me
I am a figment, you are next to me

about

The Utilities Lethbridge, Alberta

Their work is genuine. They have been making music together for the better part of a decade with sounds drawing from folk and Can-rock. Their take on guitar-heavy indie is both familiar and forward-thinking.
